Bruising for Besos

2016, USA, 89 min
Directed & Written By: Adelina Anthony

Charismatic Xicana lesbian Yoli is part of the queer/trans artists of color scene in Los Angeles. When she decides to pursue Daña, an alluring Puerto Rican woman, the calmness of her day- to-day life is upended and her tumultuous past resurfaces in the present. Yoli must choose between a familiar pattern of damaging vices -- or begin to face the history that haunts her -- in order to learn how to love "right."

The screening will include closed captioning and the Q&A will include ASL interpretation.
